Are We Doing Enough to Curb COVID-19 Cases in Schools?

2,617. That’s the number of active COVID-19 cases involving schools as of late, according to Health Minister Dato’ Sri Dr. Adham Baba. Overall, they span 49 clusters. As the number of community cases continues to stay above 2,000 across Malaysia, we look at what needs to be done to protect our precious schoolchildren and teachers, together with Professor Dr Sanjay Rampal, Epidemiologist at Universiti Malaya.
